Please join me for a hike on the beautiful trails of the Island Ford unit of the Chattahoochee River Natl Recreation Area (CRNRA). We will be hiking at a steady but moderate pace along the river, up into the woods and looping back around to view the water. We will NOT be hiking the lollipop loop.
There are some hills, roots and rocks but will be manageable for people who have been hiking easier D2s.
If you are someone that wants a fast fitness hike or wants to go up ahead please do not sign up as the plan is to stick together as a group.
We will meet at the Visitor Center. See below for directions.
Please note that there is a $3 cash parking fee unless you have an annual Chattahoochee River Rec parking pass.
There are no bathrooms because the visitors center will be closed.
Please feel free to bring your dog but know that, per park rules, all dogs must be on a leash.
